The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the TMEM16 (anoctamin) family of proteins, some of which form integral membrane calcium-activated chloride channels. The function of the encoded protein has yet to be elucidated, although it may have channel-forming abilities and also may have phospholipid scramblase activity. This gene has been observed to be upregulated in stage II and III colorectal cancers. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2016]

Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include intracellular calcium activated chloride channel activity and phospholipid scramblase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ANO4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ANO9 Gene
Has calcium-dependent phospholipid scramblase activity; scrambles phosphatidylserine, phosphatidylcholine and galactosylceramide (By similarity). Does not exhibit calcium-activated chloride channel (CaCC) activity (PubMed:22178883). Can inhibit the activity of ANO1 (PubMed:20056604, PubMed:22946059).
